'll be able to reach democrats and republicans who care more about the country. an increased use of the teleprompters, to avoid mistakes >> i need your vote, i need your work, walk with me, let's walk together, tomorrow is a new beginning. >> reporter: and brian, even at this late hour, romney advisers remain very confident that they will win this election tomorrow. they dispute polls that show them trailing and cite strength of support among independents and a more enthusiastic base. >> peter alexander, starting us off with the romney campaign, thank you, peter. now over to the obama campaign, his push also rode through ohio today. his final stop in ohio, however. nbc's kristen welker has more. >> reporter: president obama is defending his firewall last stop right here in iowa, a state that holds special meaning and also crucial electoral votes. it is the last push, today, the president traveled more than a thousand miles through the three midwestern battleground states he sees as critical to the election, from wisconsin. >> are you fired up? to ohio, where he continues to capit
've got chuck todd joining us and howard fineman. i have to give you some anecdotal information which has given me good information. i have a brother charlie who always votes for the winner. he called me an hour ago and said it's obama. because that's who he's going to vote for. don't laugh, chuck. when you get an absolute provable leading indicator you will never let it go either. so i've got one. i've looked at all the numbers today. all the numbers seem to point to a mild victory for obama. none seem to point for a victory for romney. what do you know so far? >> i can tell you the body language of the campaign, talking to the two campaigns. the obama folks don't think they're trailing in a single battleground state and this is the day before the election. that's not to say they think they win every one of the nine battlegrounds if you include north carolina in that larger nine. that's how confident they are. that's how much they believe that they have done enough of what i would call the building the flood walls, if you will, with the early vote and the absentee. and what their turn in
had my sister and i and raised us in new york. she could not vote in her home town until she was 40 years old in 1965 but her generation made it possible for me to vote, for me to run for president, for me to sit in rockefeller center on election eve. i owe my children more than i have. she gave me more than she had. tomorrow i like obama but i'll be voting for my mama. thank you for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> an easy choice. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in philadelphia. let me start tonight with this. tomorrow america, this country of ours will be divided. half the country will vote for president obama and keep faith with the current direction. half will vote with varying degrees of anger to depart from it. to who knows in one of the various directions governor romney has offered. with him you need a weather map to know what road he's going to take on any given day. the question looms now of how this country will get together the day after tomorrow. i always think that's important, but it's more important now because o
will be tomorrow. just in terms of the president's path. can you take us down that path? >> i can. but i have to leave all this partisan -- >> please do. >> they're going to start voting in new hampshire in a couple hours. the main event is tomorrow as we look at the map. it's got a file up there that i'm going to have to close and make it go away, i can handle that with the map. one thing we know, here's the map from 2008. this is election night. we're not going to have this. we're going to have a much closer, much more competitive election. who can get to 270. you have to say this. the president has an easier path, and the president, if you're a betting person, the money would be safer on the president. it takes 270 to win. we have the president at 237. those are the dark blue states. governor romney at 270, same thing. the question is, who can get to 270 easiest? the president is ending in three midwestern states, wisconsin, ohio and iowa. if he wins those three. nothing else changes, game over. that's why he's there. all of the candidates, you know what they think they need, that's for th
. >> someone who would always tell us the truth even when it's hard. i wanted a president driven not by politics or which way the wind is blowing but by the struggles, hopes and dreams of all americans. the more i thought about it, the more i knew in my heart that i was describing barack. i knew he could be that president, and for four years that's exactly what he's done. he has stayed true to himself and with your help, he's worked day after day to make this country better to move it forward. he's rescued our economy from the brink of collapse, saved the auto industry. [ applause ] he's passed historic health reform, ended the war in iraq. he's fought so women get equal pay and students can afford college. [ applause ] he's fought for our seniors so they can retire with dignity and our veterans so that they can get the benefits they earned and the respect they deserve. for four years barack has been fighting to give every single one of us a fair shot at that great american dream no matter what we look like or where we come from or who we love. [ applause ] for four years we have
49% to 38%. that's well within the margin of error. newt gingrich joins us. before we talk about those, dixville and about 59 men's? >> it's great. it's the american drama. after all the talk, all the ads, all the upon -- ponficating, the american people get to tell us. >> we will get to new hampshire in a second. new national policy just in, gov. romney up by one. i mean, it's tied. do these national polls mean anything right now or should we be focusing on these state by state? >> i don't think anything means anything you can reeye on. there are two alternative universes out there. if you believe, as one national poll did two days ago, that there is going to be an 11% more democratic voting base, they got to a tie between romney and obama by saying it will the democrats 1 is% more likely to vote. that's higher than 2008. that's in conceivable. you have to wonder where their brain was at. on the other hand, if you believe as i do, as a lot of other key players do that the energy, the enthusiasm, the drive is on the romney side, i'll give you one example. they are talking about d
, and with us onset here at democracy plaza. we have msnbc contributor and former senior strategist from the mccain/palin campaign, steve schmidt? >> coming attraction. >> good tease. >> he's down in south florida. we also have mark haleprin, senior political analyst, and look at this, this is huge. >> we have michael steele. >> michael steele here. >> oh, my gosh. >> it's a great way to start. >> wow. >> great way to start six hours of coverage. >> thank you. >> we also have john heilemann, he's in chicago. >> yes, we do. >> do we have john heilemann. >> great. that's great. >> this is a fun game. >> throw out a name and see if they're here. >> we started this really well. >> you know, in major league baseball, t.j., getting 4 out of 5 right, you would be -- >> that's pretty good. >> it'll get you fired on election day. hey, everybody let's vote. fire t.j. okay. here we go. mika, the "new york times" talks about now it goes to the voters state-by-state, "usa today" talks about decision time. today's a huge day? >> yes, people are choosing on the direction of the country. >> yeah, what do you t
>>> that's all for us tonight. a quick tweet here, he's tweeting on air, how is he doing that? magic. election day voting begins tomorrow. dixville notch votes live at midnight. we'll bring it to you. ac 360 starts right now. >>> good evening everyone, it's 10ing 00 here on the east coast. the candidates are campaigning. take a look, this is tonight's obama rally, the final event of the final campaign of his political career. he's closing things out where it all began with the iowa caucuses. we're waiting for the president to speak at some point during the hour. we'll bring that to you live. mitt romney is not done yet. he has two appearances scheduled for tomorrow. one in ohio, one in pennsylvania. the campaigns have been everywhere that matters lately. every state that could swing tomorr tomorrow, ohio, pennsylvania, florida, new hampshire. running mates surrogates also dotting the map. in the end it's down to the candidate and the candidate's last vocal cord. >> fired up. ready to go. fired up, ready to go. >> you know, if anyone wants to know where the energy is, anyone fo
best do that in the u.s. senate right now? i thought about that with my wife and children, and they have been such wonderful supporters, and i realize there is a gridlock. we cannot allow it to continue. we cannot have the nation we want if senate and congress is gridlock. i decided my experience as a tough times mayor and governor were an experience i could bring to the table to make good things happened in partnership with others. that was 19 months ago. we have trouble more than 60,000 miles. we have recruited more than 50,000 donors, including a deer i hit and killed, so we gave up a windshield process required and in the process. this campaign has taught me now more than ever we need people who know how to be partners rather than just partisans. we are americans but virginians furs. i learn this when i was the mayor. we knew who the democrats and republicans were. we were bipartisan. as a mayor, we were able to build schools common on -- to build schools, to cut crime, to clean up the river, and we did it by working together. as governor, you get a four-year term. min
is live with us. >> the president did the last campaigning for himself and see if a future democratic president will bring it out like mr. obama brought out president clinton. he will have basketball game with friends and time at home and mr. obama will have dinner with the family before sitting down to watch the election returns. in ohio, battle ground state he visited more than any other and likely decide whether he will return to the white house. he was introduced by bruce springsteen and jay z . later in iowa, the state that his bid. spring steep and mr. obama got teary eyed as he thought about the past. >> you said yes, we can and we did. and we didn't know the challenges . we knew we would get through those challenges the same way the nation always has. with that determined unconquerable american spirit. >> now by tradition . both the president and mitt romney would be out of sight much of the day. mr. obama is doing satellite interviews with radio and tv stations and mr. mitt romney campaigning in ohio and pennsylvania. >> thank you so much. >> brian: for mitt romney that was a
. so much for that. john roberts is still with us. explain the rationale for what the romney team tells you in order for them to be victorious today. what key do they need to happen? >> reporter: they need their ground game to work. they need to rack em, stack em and get em out to the polls. there are a lot of states where president obama never left the states since the 2008 election. when you look at the early voting numbers in florida and ohio, obama has the advantage. but that advantage smaller in some cases by half of what it was in '08. does governor romney have a chance to take this? yes, he does. dose have a lot of work to do today if he hopes to get it? absolutely. bill: we want to move to chicago. martha: we saw a hug between mitt romney and tagg romney who has been instrumental throughout the course of this campaign. let's swing over to the other side of this huge decision for today. president obama will spend the day in his hometown of chicago. he has no public events scheduled today. held the last campaign rally ever in his political career last night in the state of iowa. t
, there will be a bullet in the back of the head of our republic. that will finish us. >> we have some votes to switch to the popular vote system but now we have the opposite position. the caller points to how the electoral college came into being. the framers really did not -- were not very wary of the national popular vote and wanted to fashion a compromise between people who supported that and people who wanted the congress to elect a president. this was kind of seemed as a compromise between the two positions. host: has there been an effort to change the way we things we do things, as far as the alleged role college is concerned? guest: to my knowledge, a last effort to abolish that was 1979. it came far short of the two- thirds majority to clear a constitutional amendment in the senate. that happened three years after the 1976 election, which was a lot closer than most remember. there were 20 states between jimmy carter and gerald ford that were decide within five points. as hard as that is to imagine today in this era of 849 twin states. in the house, there was a vote in 1969 to abolish the a lo
on why they vote the way they are. martha maccallum will cover that for us. >> reporter: they are analyzing the response as they come out of the polling places tonight. there are key states like ohio and virginia. the polls are still open for hours as people come home from work and continue to vote. so many areas we haven't heard from yet. what we can tell you for sure so far is that this is a very tight race tonight. let's start with the national poll question. direction of the country. are we on the right track or the wrong track? it's evenly divided. those saying we are on the right direction and going for president obama, no surprise there. 52%, though, say we are headed in the wrong direction. they are backing governor romney. now voters are split on whether the economy is getting better or worse. huge question tonight for everyone, of course. you have about four out of ten states getting better. three of ten say it's getting worse. three of ten says it stays the same for them. slightly more voters think governor romney would hand the economy better. slightly more v
of the voters, especially in their crucial battleground states. they told us that the candidates are now waiting for the only poll that matters. president obama and mitt romney both threw battleground states on monday for the final push of the e votes for the -- push of the votes for the election day. and he told supporters romney's campaign is the greatest hits collection of failed policies. >> he is trying to pretend that somehow his own ideas did not work and that they are new and they will work this time. >> reporter: wrapping up the last political campaign in ohio and iowa, the president says that the choice on tuesday is a matter of trust. >> you know what i believe. and you know where i stand. and you know i tell the truth. and you know that i will fight for you and your family every single day as hard as i know how. >> reporter: president obama will monitor the returns from his hometown of chicago. mitt romney's campaign will await the results in boston. the republican nominee got a rocking reception in columbus, ohio. that they failed to deliver the change he promised. >> talk is cheap.
. that's an early night for us all. althoughs pennsylvania better than i do. i don't think it's been awe thenltally in play. i think there was a series of head fakes going on but that's never been a central battground. >> rose: mark? >> well, they're winning pennsylvania because this is the first campaign where no one has to make choices about money because they have enough to spend and they had extra money and there wasn't any other place to put and the public polls make it clear it's closer. the president will win by a more narrow margin than four years ago. i think that the -- i agree with matthew the fundamentals matter most of all. ohio is a tricky place, though, because while the economy is better than it was, still not particularly good. >> rose: is ohio enough for governor romney? >> if he wins the southern states and colado it's enough. >> and i think one of the conversations maybe we'll have in the aftermath of this is one of the things he's had in ohio-- and it's the electoral problem that he has had-- is that the electoral college moved from an advantage they had to a democra
